spoke with reporters in london for half an hour. >> it is a great honor to welcome the 68 secretary of state of the united states of america. >> senator kerry, we are delighted that you have chosen here for your first trip overseas. and to pay tribute to the immense experience he brings to his new role. we have had detailed and thorough talks covering their range of affairs from the middle east and the importance we both attached to ending the israeli- palestinian conflict. i welcome the focus he has brought to bear on this issue. there is no more urgent priority than restarting negotiations between the israelis and palestinians. that region of the world can't afford the current dangerous impasse. if we don't make progress very soon, that two-state solution might be impossible to achieve. there is a burning need to revive the peace process. supported by european, arab, and other nations. i know that mr. kerrey will make every effort to analyze and make decisive moves for peace. i welcome president obama visit to the middle east this spring. the secretary and i plan to meet this week

in london where he was a pianist. so he was very artistic, if you like. and what i think is so clever about this painting is, yes, sure it says in a literal way with the ring and the objects around that this is what this man is about, but it's the expression as well. there's a feeling of sensitivity introspection, fragility. we need to value this intriguing object, and jackson, ken jackson although dead, was a considerable force in portrait painting in the area, and it needs to be taken seriously. he's not that prominent. perhaps one day he will become so. but i would comfortably value this picture at £800, 900 possibly even £1,000. but of course, its value is that it's. oh, yeah. it was never be sold. i would never sell it. no, no. these are lovely vintage clothes, but a lot of people end up taking them to a charity shop. why did you keep them? well, i think it was my mother who kept them, and then because i do tend to hoard things, i just kept them in the box where they've been all this time. right, and this lovely early one here lovely chiffon and lace. w

i'm told that this was actually a gift. it was, yeah. it was a friend that lived in london who, i admired this every time we went up there. a few other pieces, as well. but she decided to move to wales, and brought this with her, but it just wouldn't fit in the small house she was moving into. that's remarkable. so you just admired it. i admired it. and it ended up... i ended up owning it. forgive me, i don't mean to pry, but you do need a house of a certain size for this. i live in a large house. you've got a large house. and what about conservatory? i've got a conservatory, where this lives. because that's what it was destined for. is it? way back in the 1870's. but let's have a look at this combo, if you will. because the pedestal is quite breathtaking, isn't it? yeah, it's beautiful. and you know and i know there's a mark under there that says minton. and minton, for me, the great factory. the great ceramic manufacturer of the entire 19th century. dalton's, yes, wedgwood, yes. but when you're talking victoriana, it doesn't get any better for me than minton. i mean, this is pot

around the corner from us here in london. thank you for coming by. >> pleasure. >> do you agree with what the white house is saying and what a lot of these ceos seem to be saying which is that the country is suffering a lack of competitiveness because of the lack of immigration policy? is this the next issue on the agenda? >> i think it's one of the issues. look at how they acted after 2008. i mean, the recession technically in the u.s. was smaller than it was in the eurozone. but the measures that were taken in the u.s. at that point in time in 2008 and 2009 were a lot more stringent than they were in the eurozone. if you look at the job cuts at that point in time, if you look at insolvencies, i think it's a lot more stringent than it happened here. but the flip side of the coin is the way it worked itself out of the recession i think is more impressive than what we're seeing here. wouldn't you say that has more to do with avoiding a sovereign debt crisis by virtue of not being a haphazard monetary union? >> that's part of it. but also, i think the way the u.s. manage itself out of the c
